Minor value I admit - but as I think someone mentioned earlier - its very easy to move to this throw site after catching the exception in application code and then can add a breakpoint and rerun.
Then can explore the problem in the "correct context" of the code - stepping through all the library code whilst obviously possible can just take a long time - particularly as the code organisation in the library (for sensible reasons) will be more complex than I really want to know about as a user - being able to start at the correct "implementatioin/detail" level with (hopefully) the code which was complaining about the input nearby does help.
